The National Security Agency previously targeted the Israeli prime minister, according to new top-secret documents leaked by Edward Snowden.
The documents, obtained by The Guardian, reportedly reveal that the NSA, in cooperation with the British Government Communications Headquarters, targeted an email address belonging to the Israeli leader.
“One GCHQ document, drafted in January 2009, makes clear that the agencies were targeting an email address listed as belonging to another important American ally – the ‘Israeli prime minister,’” The Guardian reported, noting Ehud Olmert was in office at the particular time.
The Israeli defense minister also appears to have been targeted by the spy agencies, according to the British newspaper.
The Guardian reported that the NSA and GCHQ also targeted various charities and organizations, including the United Nations development program and children’s charity.
